Une entente est intervenue, entre l’AICPA et CPA Canada pour un titre unifié en juricomptabilité. Il permettra aux CPA canadiens d’avoir accès aux ressources américaines telles que des forums de discussion,des bulletins d’information et autres ressources pour aider les juricomptables dans leur pratique.
Toronto and New York (Feb. 21, 2014) – Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) today announced an agreement that will enhance consistency in forensic and technology advisory services across North America by giving CPAs in both countries access to the same technical resources and credentials that signify advanced proficiency in the disciplines.
The agreement, which builds on a history of cross-border collaboration, extends to CPAs in Canada the opportunity to tap into a broad portfolio of specialized information – practice aids, webcasts, newsletters and online forums – through the AICPA’s Information Management and Technology Assurance Section and its Forensic and Valuation Services Section. CPA Canada members can join those sections and, with specific qualifications and experience, obtain the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF®) and Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP®) credentials that distinguish CPAs in the practice areas.
“Clients and employers increasingly look for specialized skillsets to tackle issues made more complicated by technology and the pace of globalization,” said Frank Colantonio, CPA, CA, director of continuing education for CPA Canada. “This alliance between CPA Canada and the AICPA will help them more easily identify financial professionals across North America who have met the highest bar of competency to navigate complex issues like technology risk and fraud prevention.”
The AICPA’s governing council last May set the stage for the expanded cross border relationship, authorizing the Institute through its board of directors to offer specialized credentials to non-U.S. accounting professionals. It required that the AICPA work only with accounting bodies with significant national or international stature and stringent eligibility requirements and codes of conduct.
